policy of the united states, progressive area into the fdr and lbj years and we accept those laws now as part of redistribution. stuart: judge, i've the got to jump in. i would go further. i would maintain that to some degree, redistribution, neo-socialism is popular. >> it's popular. certainly popular with the 47% of whom mitt romney spoke. and some receive some for social security and medicare, most are paid money from the government. >> paying payroll taxes on that money. >> this is a scam. here is the the scam. when fdr sold the country on social security, he said we will quote, hold your money for you, his word. we will hold it for you and when you retire, we will give you back your nest egg. he was lying. we know he was lying because at the same time he said we will hold your money for you, he dispatched justice department lawyers to the supreme court to argue against challenges on the constitutionality of social security. and then those arguments, the lawyers said it's not the money of the taxpayer, it's the federal government's money and the federal government is free to spend

the president of the united states. there are things that can relieve the price of oil we are not doing. dagen: is it healthy that this is not the kind of shock that we saw in 2008 where it will spike above $100 a barrel, was $135 a barrel at the high. oil has remained relatively high for the american people in the last few years and got me chance to learn to live with it. >> that is true but also hurts everybody. certainly the lower end of the economy if you are a person who has to drive a long distance to work and you have to shell out that much more for your pay, it is a problem. natural gas is going to be a substitute that will have its day. we have an unlimited supply. dagen: would you invest in oil and commodities? >> i am already invested in oil and commodities to a great extent because as i said inflation is a genie in the bottle that will get out sooner or later and ben bernanke and all the politicians in the world can't bribe themselves enough to keep it in. dagen: it would take a healthy economy to trigger that and this economy is not. >> it does not take a healthy economy to trigge

've ripped down says, "embassy of the united states." anti-american violence spread in the region today, fueled by anger or a once-obscure internet movie that ridicules islam, a film produced in the united states but one that has been condemned by the u.s. government. a mob attacked but did not break in to the u.s. embassy in yemen. in telephone calls today, president obama be thanked the president of yemen for condemning this embassy attack, but he told the president of egypt that the embassy there needs to be better protected. all of this, of course, comes a day after the u.s. ambassador to libya and three other americans were killed in a fiery assault on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. our team of correspondents is covering every angle of this story, and we begin in benghazi where charlie d'agata made it inside the american consulate where the americans died. >> reporter: the attackers made sure there was nothing left. every single room in every single building on this compound looks like this-- torched and ransacked. no place was safe and there is nowhere to hide. a young nei

in the united states, but look what's happening. the market just keeps laughing it off and going up in the face of danger, all of the indices are up today. as cheryl and i were talking, they did come down a little bit. it was triple digits in the dow a little earlier in the day, it came down from that point but still a 69-point gain b is quite impressive. all of the indices, nasdaq the smallest of the gainers today, just up .02%, but russell 2000 up as well. when the bell rings, the action begins, a former hedge fund manager who says the federal reserve does have a secret weapon that a lot of people aren't talking about that it could fire this week. it's not more money printing we're talking about. also, we have a fox business exclusive interview with legendary investor mark babier, he's going to outline the five reasons why he thinks equities could fall, but first, today's data download. stocks ended the day in the green but well off session highs. energy and financials were the best performing sectors while consumer staples and utilities did lag. the dow hit its highest level since december 2
ahead. and if the united states locked in an economic cold war with china? the author of a new book says yes. he will tell us why he thinks u.s. companies and political leaders need a completely new battle plan to fight the chinese threat. hmmm. as we mentioned the dow only down about 17, 18 points right now. top of the hour. time for stocks as we do every 15 minutes. we head down to nicole petallides on the floor of the new york stock exchange. hey, nicole. >> hey, trace, good afternoon, everybody. the dow is down 18 points. it is off the highs we saw yesterday. closed at the highest level since december of 2007. today pulling back about 18 points. not really giving back that 244 point gain we saw yesterday. right now the nasdaq has a down arrow. the s&p is up one quarter of 1%. i want to look at a laggard though on the dow jones industrial average. that is kraft. when you look at kraft, they have two kinds of businesses. they have the international business and the north american business. they will be spinning off. that will happen october 1st. when they gave the projections for 2013
matters, just a short while ago the united states state department announced it is temporarily withdrawing staff from our embassy in tripoli, libya, for security reasons. joining us now to discuss his latest development, prime minister netanyahu speech at the united nations and that bold red line. fox news contributor, former u.s. ambassador to the united nations, john bolton. john, let's first turn to this development in tripoli, with strong our personnel. what is that about? >> i think it is a further concession really to reality in libya that it is not secure there and we cannot guarantee the safety of our personnel. if that is the judgment they make and i think the only prudent thing to do is pull them out. lou: do we not look like complete idiots, the united states? it is now two weeks and two days since the murder of our ambassador. we now have figured out there is a security issue? >> apparently we withdraw non-essential personnel before, but the fbi team that is supposed to be investigating has apparently not gonna get either. lou: they are reporting that they have been there for d
how the united states is responding next. first as we do every day at this time of day, check out how oil is moving right now based on that news out of libya. not moving much at all. down 11 cents. $97.11 a barrel. before copd... i took my son fishing every year. we had a great spot, not easy to find, but worth it. but with copd making it hard to breathe, i thought those days might be over. so my doctor prescribed symbicort. it helps significantly improve my lung function starting within five minutes. symbicort doesn't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden symptoms. with symbicort, today i'm breathing better. and that means...fish on! symbicort is for copd including chronic bnchitis and emphysema. it should not be taken more than twice a day. symbirt may increase your risk of lung infections, osteoporosis, d some eye problems. tell your doctor if you have a heart condition or high blood pressure before taking it. with copd, i thought i'd miss our family tradition. now symbicort significantly improves my lung function, starting within 5 minutes. and that makes a difference in my breathin
of the united states redistributed more income than we have today. connell: let me stop you for one second -- >> -- that's why the economy is having so many problems. connell: and the reason is i want to explain the chart. brian gave us this chart to tell you what you are looking at. government spending percentage of the economy versus stocks, versus the dow. >> yep. connell: so the yellow line is stocks. do you see where it is going up there? going all the way back to the 60s. and the blue line is government spending. it tells you what, brian? >> yeah, it's very very clear, if you look at that chart. back when lbj, lyndon johnson became president in 1965, we passed the great society programs, government spending shot up, and the stock market went nowhere for 17 years. then ronald reagan came in and even bill clinton lowered and reduced spending as a share of gdp, and the stock market exploded, and now in the last decade, under president bush and then obama, government spending has shot up again. no wonder stocks have been flat for the past decade. connell: they have been for a long time.
's a shock to me, as someone who emigrated to united states many years ago, it's shocking, the bureaucracy is so thick, so huge, i'm astonished-- >> it's amazing, one of the things that's holding people back. you talk about the fact that the unemployment rah it is not markedly getting better, on the contrary it's getting worse, especially frustrated workers. those who are vulnerable, and something interesting in the past in america, unlike other countries, when people become chronically unemployed in the bottom half of the income distribution when they tend to turn towards our own ideas for creating businesses-- you see an explosion of low income entrepreneurship, after about nine months of the income-- out of the income stream and the employment force. it's not happening this time and we have to ask ourselves, what's going on. and there is an answer, and the policy uncertainty to be sure, but more to the point, it's harder and harder to get out from behind this bureaucracy, to start a business and that's especially true, if somebody doesn't have a brother-in-law who is a consultant and so
deficits in the history of the united states. four deficits in excess of a trillion dollars each so that more than a third of all the debt ever run up in the 236-year history of the united states, more than a third of it was under barack obama's presidency in the last three and a half years. who's going to pay off the debt? our children and a grandchildren. that's who is going to pay it off. that's where romney and paul ryan are calling for a growth agenda where we can start creating jobs in this country and not have economic growth of 1.7%, under 2% and a federal reserve board that believes we'll be in this shape for two years. that's why they say they will keep interest rates for another two years. >> you heard him talk about the debt created under president obama when the country was going off a fiscal cliff and the banks were seizing up. he never referenced the 5 trillion in debt generated under george bush while he was governor. he never referenced the two wars we didn't pay for. george bush was the first president in the history of the union to go to war and give people a tax
this, is seeking back the president of the united states, is to? former new hampshire governor. well bin bernanke's announcement was about stimulating the economy, it was also about stimulating the president's poll numbers. the governor does not think that this will have the desired effect. governor, this is a fairly blatant move with little more than 50 days to go until the election. it really could have waited. why do you think it happened the way it did? >> i am not sure if it was overt or just the psychological pressure on the back that told him to do it now, but -- neil: why do it now? you would do that now? >> no. if he was going to do it he should have done it for five months ago. obviously it was not appropriate then. it is probably -- it is a problem now. look. what he has done is not a qe3. it is to the infinite. there is no timeframe. there is no limit to the amount. he just says, we are going to do 40 billion a month on mortgage-backed securities. then the next paragraph he says, and we might move to purchasing this is going to clobber, i believe, in the long run the doll
percentage of its revenues come from outside the united states and this is a smaller market cap as a spinoff so it was a logical replacement. >> i will see you first, don't buy united health. there's very little money. my hands are different color from my face. what does that mean? there's makeup. >> the dow jones industrial average, the price pointed index which should have absolutely no meaning but they have to keep doing it that way because that's the way they started. everybody follows the s&p but we talk about the dow jones because that's what you hear about on the radio. >> this is the opportunity for the dow to go higher. kraft very levered to commodity costs. particularly we know that the big inflationary trend is food. okay? and they're a huge buyer of all of these commodities. united health, very little commodity costs so you get kind of an inflation break that deals with ben's pro-inflation strategy yesterday. >> this is the first change to the dow jones industrial average since 2009. just to your point that nobody follows the dow jones industrial average, how much money is actual
aren't moving anywhere. it's on hope they can get it rationalized. united states is on fire and everyone keeps saying why can't we buy ford. because of latin america and europe. >> facebook, a bit backward looking, but the best day yesterday since that ipo. it's almost you can't say ipo without saying botched ipo. that's the way everybody says it. was there a turn yesterday? >> i think that you're going to have a well p like situation is what people hope. yelp was a giant lock up that expired and all the shorts were piled on. it went up seven. you have to bet that everyone is overly short facebook to get this thing going. i think it's more of the dynamics of the lock up in actual earnings. >> the big lock up is coming november and by november, we'll have more than a million shares hit the market. >> that's a big lock up to overcome. >> aig was remarkable. had 600 million shares hit, but aig of course was valued at half book. facebook, not valued at half book. >> taking a look at the financials, it is worth noting because xlf closed at five-month highs. taking a bit of a brea
've dropped again, four years in a row, and now six different nations top the united states in the world economic forum's list of the most competitive economies. dagen: and this will go over well, in greece, calls to increase the workweek there to six days. say it ain't so. connell: say it ain't so. a lot to talk about today. at the top of the hour, before we talk about anything else, let's do stocks now as we do every 15 minutes with nicole petallides. disney today, all-time high. nicole: we have a long-term chart of disney to take a look at here. when you look at it year to date, up over 30%. hitting all-time high of 51.13. recently we found that between april and june, disneyland resort drew the most visitors than it ever had before in the same period. of course you think of disneyland, you think of disney resorts, you think of also media and film. films like the avengers for example. disney certainly has recent success and that is evident here in the stock up 2 1/2%. the major market averages the dow right now is up about 8 1/2 points. back above the 13,000 mark. we're watching europ
at many different park service units across the united states. the only time i've ever had a break is when i was on maternity leave. i have retired from doing this one thing that i loved. now, i'm going to be able to have the time to explore something different. it's like another chapter. >> if we continue this, it will be a disaster. that is the anxiety of the country. i keep saying winter is coming and you better understand that. charles: that was during our last hour reacting to mitt romney's slip in the latest polls. remember you have to tune in every day at 9:20 a.m. eastern time for farney and company. the dow is kind of fighting back here. let's take a look at gold. still down seven dollars. 17.33. not a big change in gas prices over the weekend. the national average still $3.82. he still holding out $4.11. president obama attacked mitt romney's plan. on friday in new hampshire, the president defended his administration for creating jobs. >> today we learned that after losing 800,000 jobs a month when i took office, business once again added jobs for the 30th month in a row. a total
. >> in the sense that china is slowing down, europe is a mess, a lot of foreign capital coming to the united states, whether it's real estate. equities, treasuries, and worst still the united states, the bad lot. people are going to maintain them and we're outperforming and many versus india and russia and the money is slowing out of the u.s. and you see the money coming here. so far so good. and the scenario is right about bernanke being proactive and the money keeps coming. >> every time you come to the program, a great guest for us to have and we appreciate that. you said, look, go for the big name, international companies, are you still there? >> still there because we like the global footprint and the core competencies and the global brand. it takes decades, good management and core competence to build that out. and apple, ge, ibm, not recommending those, they're good global brands around for 50, 100 years, and they're going to be around for another hundred years. >> joe, good stuff. we appreciate it, thank you so much. sir. time for the gold report. almost at 950 eastern. where are we now? lo
and the top 1% or 2% but you need some sort of tax overhaul to make the united states more competitive. connell: we talk about that a lot. the first part, i think it is pretty interesting especially from you. bill clinton argued nobody could have fooled us out of this economic mess in four years and included himself. it sounds like you think we could have been pull out of it but not in a way that some of argued. some argued we need a completely different prescription altogether. you say we needed more money spent than was spent. >> we needed more targeting of what was spent. health care was important but that should have been the second priority. first priority should have been no different than when roosevelt took office. the economy, stupid. you have to put people back to work and he has not done a good enough job and he has to get the best and brightest together and come up for the real dialogue. this is what i'm going to do. not just sweeping generalities or romney and ryan are retrograde to what failed in the first place. team needs a positive agenda for america. connell: let me a
it would be wrong for the united states to apologize for distance itself from this bigoted anti-islam video. well, neither our state department nor our country, nor i think if i can say so, most americans have any reason to defend this vile and previously obscure video that surfaced online from some extremist. it is frustrating for the foreign policy and the diplomacy at stake here to have someone of mr. romney's stature implying wrongly that somehow we need to defend this crap. >> steve clemens, there's a statement that the romney campaign policy director made to "the new york times" which indicates that they were waiting for something like this, they were waiting to pounce. she said, we've had this consistent critique and narrative on obama's foreign policy and we felt this was a situation that met our critique. so, steve, she's saying they were waiting for something and they saw this and they thought, okay, this is it, here we go. and they jumped out there with the attack. and so this seems to have been premeditated even before the events developed. >> sure it was, lawrence. and i think
one best seller in the united states. this is a topic a lot people are very curious about. so what extra pressure does that put on the u.s. government, mark? >> well, tremendous. now, if anyone remembers back to the pentagon papers case 40 years ago and the thought of could the government stop publication of the book? the legal standard is just too high. the fact is is the book's been out. and obviously media has copies of it. so it would be too difficult to put the genie back in the bottle. the publisher has ratcheted this up. not only increased the print run but expedited the publication date from the 11th to the 4th. so practically speaking there's not even any time for the government to do anything. >> some people might say this is disgusting. you come back, all these other guys are on your team and they don't do this and you want to get rich and you go and put a pseudonym and write the book. other people say no, what's wrong with what he did, after all, the president gave details of what happened in the raid. it's his version where they said bin laden was reaching for a gun an
part of the story of the economy here in the united states. >> quincy, what areas of the market are going to continue rising, assuming you believe the stock market goes higher? >> i think you're going to see the cyclical sectors, the ones that were neglected by the defensive sectors. if you think this is going to move higher, you're already moving into the industrials, the materials, and energy and tech. and financials as well. >> you think this has legs? what do you think the rest of the year looks like in terms of this market? >> this is not straight up. i think one of the reasons you see gains locked in today is who wants the spend the weekend worrying about what's going on in the middle east? there are going to be issues that pull this market back, but i think that you've got a bottom for the market, and you're going to see it grind higher every time there's a pullback. >> stephanie, you told me yesterday immediately following the fed decision when you were sitting next to me on "halftime," buy the financials head over fist. >> yeah, and we actually added to the stock i pick
of would happen if the united states goes over the fiscal cliff. they have to engage in sequestration, or massive budget cuts. by the numbers, here's what in the proposal they put out today starting with a 9% cut to most pentagon programs. customs, the faa, and food inspection services. exempt from the cutbacks are social security, medicaid and also many veterans benefits. earlier today, white house spokesman jay carney said that the white house hopes it never has to put this plan into place. take a listen. >> sequester was designed to be bad policy,n n tn to to be one and to be objectionable to both republicans and democrats. >> now, maria, what the white house is saying also, senior officials here in a briefing earlier today they hope now that some of these painful cuts are laid out, this could help marshal support from republicans to do something about the fiscal cliff before it hits at the end of this year. obviously, there's a big election between now and then. >> oh, yeah. thank you so much. worries those budget woes and tax hikes could come to pass are among the reason busines
of coal and the president wants to shut down coal production and the use of coal in the united states and, so that we can export it to our economic competitors around the world. the house is going to speak once again that this is a big step in the wrong direction. >> the white house says this bill packages together a number of harmful measures that would undermined landmark environmental laws and would adversely affect public health, the economy and the environment. if this bill passes the house the senate will very likely pass on even considering it. back to you. ashley: the saudi arabia of coal. that's what we are. rich, thank you very much. >> how about that? procedural vote is happening now in the senate and that's possible that senators could vote on a six-month spending bill and then of course leave town until the november elections but it's not a done deal yet. joining us now with exclusive, for an exclusive interview republican senator mike crapo of idaho. senator, i have to tell you i think i speak on behalf of a lot of americans when i say we are so sick of hearing this kind of
. japan's doing it. europe's doing it. the united states is doing it. and guess what? they are not going to change. end of discussion. stuart: tres, you make so much sense, direct and to the point, we kind of like that. thank you very much. see you soon. the democrats pushing the same message they did over 30 years ago, especially on taxes. here's president carter from 1980. >> the republican alternative is the biggest tax give away in history. they call it -- [inaudible]. i call it a free lunch that americans cannot afford. the republican tax program offers rebates to the rich -- [inaudible]. stuart: i got deja vu all over again, biggest tax give away in the history, rebates to the rich and deprivation for the poor, does that sound familiar? mike reagan is here, author of the reagan revolution. there's a direct parallel in what president obama keeps on saying today and what jimmy carter said 32 years ago. direct? >> you get the idea the same speechwriter is alive and well and writing speeches today as he was writing speeches back for jimmy carter. it never changes. and they keep on thro
. this is blowing up in the face of the democratic party. if the president of the united states tonight continues with a theme of, elizabeth warren, and, the sudden populist drive of former president bill clinton clinton, election may be not close at all because the american people don't want to hear about us and them, telling them that the system is rigged. what they want is a fair, square deal. all they had to do was go back and look at the history of the democratic party. this isn't it. this is an anomaly. this is a departure. melissa: she is right the system is rigged. rigged against anybody that goes tout there to try to earn some money because the government is going to take it away from you. she is right but won the exact wrong point or conclusion. >> i have advice, since you prompt me in that direction for the republicans. republicans shouldn't get in a whine-off with the democrats. big boys and girls run big companies in this country and small business. it is time for everybody to stop the whining and get moving. what we desperately need in this country is a leader, in the senate, in the
